So, what's the deal with "Earnings Potential?"

    Under the stats tab, there is a little bit of info under the hubmetrics that includes "Earnings Potential."  I can only assume that more dollar signs, the better. In fact, that's been my motto for some time.  But I was wondering if someone could explain to me what exactly that means and what affects it? I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times, but I didn't see anything under the search I used.

      More dollar signs means a few more than one!

    well the more $$$$ signs you have means The keywords you have in hub have higher CPC as per the google adwords... so more pay per click. smile

      Thank you. Everything official was vague mystery talk.

        I highly recommend Google Keyword Tool. Great way to find relevant keywords for your hubs and it also has very nice CPC data.

          I`m using Google Adwords keyword tool from time to time, but it`s not the best one you can use. As for earnings I think Hubpages vs. Traffic does not convert that well after all. 2$ - 5$ per 1000 visitors this applies in case you aren`t promoting your hubs too much. If anyone is here to make a full-time income, they shouldn`t expect that in less than 12 months.

    Remember, it's "potential," not any sort of guarantee.

    I am glad you mentioned that feature. I'd never looked at it before. It is interesting to see that my hubs with the most potential are my travel hubs. I guess more hotels, etc advertise with google ads than horse products;o)

    That means I should go on more vacations so I have more places to inspire my writing. LOL, soon as I get rich writing for hubpages I'll start traveling; right now I can't afford the gas!
